COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Check out Pike’s new seasonal Post Alley Porter named for the 104 year old “thoroughfare,” a brick paved alley from the waterfront with a steepness that would allow a dray carrying a wagon-load of fish up to the Pike Place Public Market. The main entrance to the Pike Brewery is on Post Alley. The beer is a robust porter, smooth with a slight sweetness and a velvety head. Look for Pike Post Alley Porter on draft and in 22 oz bottles. Cheers!

JDBaker11058 (1313) - Maryland, USA - SEP 21, 2014
Appearance: very dark brown with a thick, creamy medium tan head, and nice concentric rings of lace. Aroma: roasty nose, with nice dark chocolate and slightly burnt barley notes, with a hint of coffee and pine. Taste: as the aroma indicates, with a bit of underlying chocolate and vanilla sweetness. Finish: lingering roast, bittersweet dark chocolate and pine. Notes: Great porter. Smooth, slightly dry, roasty, bittersweet, and well-balanced. Very drinkable.

glennmastrange (2287) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - DEC 18, 2013
Bottle. Moderate cookie and toasted for the malt, light resin for the hops, light to moderate dough and earth for the yeast, with hints of raisin and faint tar, alcohol and spice. Head is small, frothy, light brown with good lacing and good legs, and is mostly diminishing. Color is very dark brown. Flavor starts lightly sweet and moderately acidic, then finishes lightly acidic and moderately bitter. Palate is on the fuller side of medium, oily with a lively carbonation. Nice and deep Porter with lots of dark flavors.

Davhgbrew (943) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 4, 2014
Aroma of roasted coffee and chocolate. Mouthfeel is creamy and body is full. Roasted malt, assertive hop bitterness lingers throughout to the finish. Mostly dry middle and finish. Overall mostly bitter, but also highly malty full bodied porter. Very flavorful and we’ll done.

CapFlu (4548) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 28, 2012
(650ml bottle) Purchased at The Strath in Victoria. Pours a big brown frothy head atop a black body. Vanilla, soya sauce, creamy chocolate. Good bitterness on the tongue and gritty texture, rotten apples, coffee dusting and dried fruit. A good beer; thx for the recommendation Lon. --- reviewed on RateBeer.com

WheatKing (1305) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 24, 2012
Contains what I’m looking for in this style. Moderate roastiness, lots of caramel, coffee, some chocolate. Not too viscous. Not one to blow the drinker away, but gosh darn I love a well made porter.

Rich malty, coffee, caramel, burnt sugar, chocolate aromas. Beautiful dense head with good lacing very dark. Flavor similar to aroma with slight tobacco and English esters.

kramer (5034) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 25, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear dark brown, almost black body with a small fizzy light brown head that faded to a thin ring. The nose is rich and chocolaty with a strong burnt caramel and molasses quality. Fairly light on the hops. The flavor is pretty nice, certainly a robust Porter. Heavy chocolate and molasses sweetness with a nice dry roastiness on the finish. Medium to full bodied with soft gentle carbonation and a little lingering burnt caramel. Really nice robust porter.

From a 22 oz bottle shared at home. Pours black with a tan head. Roasted malt nose. Flavors of licorice and chocolate. Mildly bitter finish. Very nice Porter.
